Now that I’ve got my perfect garden all planned (in my head at least!), I’m turning my attention to designing the house I want when I am Rich.
As I’ll have unlimited money and space, I thought about including a home cinema: a specially designed room equipped with a huge screen and the latest audiovisual technology where I’ll be able to watch my favourite films whenever I want. I could ask my chef to make me some popcorn to add to the authenticity … but it wouldn’t be the same, would it?
Perhaps I’m showing my age, but for me it’s the going out that makes watching a film at a cinema so much more enjoyable than watching the same thing at home. Deciding which film to see, checking where and when it’s being shown, getting ready to go out, making the journey, buying the ticket, choosing where to sit … all make a trip to the cinema a special occasion.
I’ve just been to see The Hobbit – and loved it. It also gave me some new ideas for my ideal home. I want something that looks like Rivendell but is as cosy as a hobbit hole!
Staying in or going out? Which would you choose?
